This AV receiver was designed with a strong focus on achieving exceptionally high sound clarity. It employs a discrete amp configuration and a low jitter PLL circuit, which contribute to its excellent audio performance.
This AV receiver provides advanced HDMI features including 4K pass-through. 4K refers to four times the resolution of a 1080p display. While not yet available, 4K displays and sources are sure to become popular in the future. This receiver is capable of passing the 4K data from the source to the display for image clarity far beyond present standards.
3D means the receiver can handle 3D signal data. The Audio Return Channel function enables data to be sent and received via the same HDMI cable so you can hear the sound from the TV via a single HDMI cable with no need for an extra optical cable
Another benefit of HDMI is the availability of CEC functionality. When the unit is connected to a CEC compatible TV, it will turn on and off together with the TV and you can use the TV remote to control the volume. CEC also provides advanced functionality with other components. For example, you can use the receiver’s remote unit to control player functions like Skip and Stop.
YPAO analyzes the room acoustics and adjusts various audio parameters for optimum sound in just a few minutes. It’s like having a professional installer calibrate your system.
A USB port on the front panel allows convenient connection of an iPod/iPhone, which also charges when connected. Because the digital signal from the iPod/iPhone is transmitted directly to the AV receiver, there is no signal loss or interference so you enjoy the best possible sound quality. In addition, you can use the receiver’s remote control unit to operate the iPod/iPhone music playback functions.
Pressing a SCENE button powers on the AV receiver and selects the input source and DSP mode. You can reset the buttons for different sources by selecting a source and DSP mode then pressing a SCENE button for more than three seconds.
Yamaha’s exclusive CINEMA DSP technology supports playback of HD Audio (Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio, etc.), providing natural and expansive sound imaging.
The Subwoofer Trim Control enhances the low frequencies by avoiding overlap with the front speaker output. This will result in a cleaner, more focused sound stage while providing a seamless frequency response. When subwoofer frequency overlap occurs in conventional systems, the overall sound is “pushed” toward the subwoofer. Subwoofer Trim Control takes care of this by separating the low subwoofer frequencies cleanly, thus stabilizing the front stage while providing a well-balanced enhanced bass sound.
When music is encoded into a digitally compressed format like MP3, the frequency response suffers. Yamaha’s Compressed Music Enhancer employs sophisticated digital signal processing using exclusive algorithms to restore what was lost so the music always sounds the way it should.
Adaptive DRC automatically adjusts the dynamic range of the sound according to the volume level. This ensures that you hear clear dialogue and vocals and all sound effects at comfortable levels. There is no need to adjust the volume level as you listen; everything from whispers to big explosions will be heard clearly and comfortably at the same volume setting. It also tones down loud TV commercials and is ideal for low-volume, late-night listening when you do not want to disturb others.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does this receiver require both a hdmi and an optical cable to hook up the receiver? Thanks.
The answer is that it depends. Case 1: Connect STB to Yamaha receiver via HDMI in. Then connect Yamaha receiver to TV via HDMI out (the audio return channel HDMI). No optical cable is necessary for this. Case 2: My Smart TV has a lot of apps like Netflix. If you use these apps, then the video is streamed into the TV and the video signal stays at the TV but the audio signal is not passed via HDMI back to the receiver. Thats's where the optical cable comes in, assuming you want to get sound through your audio setup, not the TV speakers. The optical cable connects from your TV back to the Yamaha receiver (I use AV1). Set the receiver to AV1 in this instance.
I have an older sony surround a separate optical for the sub wofer ..which optical do I use on the v375. also one from the cable box to the reciver
James, do you have an HDMI connection on your cable box and or other peripherals (DVD, bluray etc)? Optical is a good solution for component or analog video connections with digital audio (surround sound) decoders. If you have HDMI then your best possible video and audio solution is to go directly from your cable box and DVD/bluray with HDMI cables which would carry 1080p (high definition) video as well as 7.1 surround sound on a single cable. If this option is out of the question then you could go the lesser quality route of using optical connection into 2 inputs on the rear of the v375. This unit would replace your current surround processor. Any further questions feel free to reply!
Would my two AR14 speakers work well with this receiver? Do I need to get a separate subwoofer?
The receiver will work with just the two speakers, but does not sound as good without the subwoofer I turned off my subwoofer and put it on 2ch stereo to hear the difference and I would recommend getting the subwoofer if you want the better sound but if you don't want to get one it wiil still work fine. You should also think about getting 2 more speakers to get the whole surround sound with the subwoofer. I hope this helps.
